Designated MGMT 4950: Special Topics, “Managing Sports Finance” will give interested juniors and seniors the opportunity to learn about sports team valuations, stadium/venue financing, and managing disparate revenue streams. The course will include guest speakers, articles, problem sets, and case studies.
The instructor, Cory Hilliard, brings plenty of first-hand experience from CU Boulder. Operating as the Chief Financial Officer of the CU Boulder Athletics Department, Hilliard knows what it takes to monitor the bottom-line of a sporting/entertainment organization.
Prerequisites: DSCI/BANA 2010 and ACCT 2200 with a grade of C or higher; ECON 2012 and ECON 2022; FNCE 3000, may be taken concurrently.
